Finalists were selected based on the judges’ scores in each area.
Mike Doyle, President and CEO of QPID, Inc. said: “We are pleased that the judges named QPID as a finalist for clinical information management. Clearly they recognize that QPID solves a major problem for providers: How to get the right clinical information into the right hands at the right time, so the best decisions can be made for patients. Electronic health record systems do a good job of collecting data, but it takes a lot of time and effort to piece together the relevant picture of the patient from the EHR. By contrast, QPID is designed to rapidly generate and deliver relevant patient summaries that fit the way clinicians diagnose and plan care.”
QPID delivers meaningful, clinically-significant patient information to clinicians and administrators from data stored in electronic patient records – critical information that might otherwise remain buried and go unfound. By activating this vital information, QPID increases physician productivity, improves patient safety, and drives revenue and cost savings through better decision making. QPID applications have been built for a variety of departments, including medicine, emergency, radiology, endoscopy, cardiology, anesthesiology and surgery. The platform can mine both structured and unstructured data, and incorporates thousands of conceptual queries that retrieve pertinent patient history, lab results, symptoms, and potential causes, among other data points relevant to diagnosing or planning care. QPID delivers clinical insights that go far beyond results from standard natural language processing, ontological or keyword search. To learn more about QPID, Inc. visit, www.qpidhealth.com.
